How Do I Love Thee Embroidery Pattern

How Do I Love Thee SeamstressErin pg1-01

I’m so very excited to announce the release of an embroidery pattern! It’s a love letter, stitched onto notebook paper. The pattern was inspired by one of my favorite movies, Who Framed Roger Rabbit. It’s from a love letter that Roger Rabbit writes to Jessica Rabbit and reads “How do i love thee? Let me count the ways. One one-thousand, two one-thousand, three one-thousand, four one-thousand, five one-thousand, six one-thousand, seven one-thousand, eight one-thousand, nine one-thousand….”

If you’re new to embroidery but want to give it a shot, this pattern is a very simple way to start. Stay tuned over the next couple of weeks and I’ll have step-by-step instructions for the two different stitches you will need to do the embroidery – french knot and backstitch.

The pattern includes instructions for how to stitch it on aida cloth (usually used for cross-stitch) as well as tightly woven fabrics (usually used for embroidery). It has four separate diagrams including the text alone for counted stitches on aida cloth, the text alone for tightly woven fabrics, the notebook paper alone, and the text and notebook paper together.

The pattern is written and includes diagrams to have a finished 7″ circular project but also includes instruction for how to easily change the size if you want a larger or smaller finished project. You can find it for sale on Craftsy. Enjoy!
